US rappers seek to bridge cultures

Three American born Muslims have been using their musical talents to present a positive image of Islam.


    A research study by the Arab-American Institute has found that 41 per cent of Muslims living in the US have experienced discrimination.

    A Muslim-American rap group is using music as a tool to present a better picture of the Muslim faith in the US and to counter negative stereotypes.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett finds out about these musicians' mission to bridge the cultural divide.
